On Fox News Sunday Newt Gingrich Gingrinch campaign site
claims he will only run for President as a last resort. Here is a brief section of his interview with Chris Wallace,
WALLACE: But you sound as if you think about running for president as a last resort, not as a first resort.

WALLACE: Last resort, not first resort.
GINGRICH: Last resort.
WALLACE: Mr. Speaker, thank you so much. Always interesting. Please come back, sir.
GINGRICH: Thank you.
